NARS Instant Crash Lipgloss
NARS Instant Crash Lipgloss

NARS Instant Crash Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft shimmering apricot.” It’s a light-medium peach with hints of warm, brown and fine white shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation with a light-to-medium-weight consistency that was mildly sticky but not thick or gluey. It didn’t appear streaky, but the color emphasized and sat in lip lines heavily, so it was less flattering worn alone. This shade wore for four hours on me. MAC Ultimate Dish (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Fashion Punch (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Cappuccino (02) (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Midnight Cowgirl (P, $26.00) is cooler (90% similar). Sephora Perfect Nude (04) (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Divergent Supreme Ritual (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

NARS Vida Loca Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “guava.” It’s a light-medium, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that covered decently, but it pulls into lip lines and emphasizes them quite noticeably. This would be better over a lipstick or lip liner. The texture is light-medium in weight, lightly tacky overall, and neither drying nor hydrating. The gloss lasted for four hours on me. MAC Pleasure First (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is darker (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Bardot Beige (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). NYX Tres Leches (P, $5.99) is more pigmented, cooler, better quality (90% similar). Anastasia Dainty (P) is lighter, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Persistent Peach (P, $19.50) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Chic Supremacy (LE, $15.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Spanking Haute (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
